Left Blank

Quiet canal,
warm cobbles,
decaying leaves…

a sun-bronzed hand
trails rust on stone.

Stained glass
connects my ribs
as sky dissolves
in teleported haze.

Silence As a Second Language

For the past ten years
I’ve been going to night school,
studying silence as a second language.

For my final project
I’m building a time machine
that will enable us to visit the present.
